    The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has unveiled England's summer touring schedule for the next eight years.

    England will visit South Africa in 2012, New Zealand two years later and then Australia in 2016. They will then return to South Africa in 2018. On all four tours, they will play three-Test series against their host nations.

    As per the International Rugby Board's recently released global playing schedule, England will not tour in World Cup years (2011 and 2015) but they are set to arrange trips to Argentina - the exact make-up of which have yet to determined - during British & Irish Lions years (2013 and 2017).

    "This is an exciting and ground-breaking schedule for all of the participating unions," the RFU's director of elite rugby Rob Andrew said. "There are no midweek games scheduled for England's summer tours as this will be determined by the respective host union and the RFU in partnership with PRL and the RPA. But as in this summer's tour to Australia and New Zealand, it's a concept we would be interested in discussing if all the relevant parties supported the idea."

    Although he does get a lot of (justified) criticism from us lot, this is actually one thing which he can say he's accomplished well. If he kept to making phone calls to the SH unions rather than butting in on England then he'd be a lot more respected by us English.
